2002-2014  ‘Psychological Workshops for Cardiac Rehab’.  For 8 years I ran the psychological aspects of cardiac rehabilitation for the six week Nu-Life Program at Noosa.  This involved taking group participants through adjustment to illness, lifestyle modifications, and life enhancement using CBT, ACT, and Mindfulness skills.  It was great fun and consistently cited as one of the most beneficial aspects of the program for participants.
